Literature on war in Afghanistan?
We at the University of Pittsburgh are planning an international PEN event that will involve bringing together contemporary creative writers who have written (in English or translated into English) on war in Afghanistan. Although the dominant focus is on the US and Soviet wars, we are potentially interested in the broader late 20th century, including the Saur revolution (the so-called “Communist insurrection”) (1978); the Soviet–Afghan War (1979–1989); the civil war (1989–92; 1992-96; and 1996-2001), and the US invasion (2001–present).
If you happen to know works (authors, titles) that could contribute to this project, I would be grateful if you could send information to me at email@example.com.
